Supporters of a bill which would make cyberbullying a criminal offense are scheduled to testify before the Texas House Public Ed Committee next Tuesday. Maureen Molak's 16-year-old son, David, killed himself after months of cyber-bullying last year.
His family formed the David’s Legacy Foundation.
“We know, from talking to experts,” Molak says, “that this is an issue that is not going to go away.”
The problem is, lawmakers have other priorities at this point in the legislative session.
She admits, “I believe that time is really not on our side with a bill like this.”
Critics say prevention of cyberbullying would be more effective than punishment.
